Read: Lucy Torres-Gomez talks from the heart about how BBM helped Ormoc after Yolanda and after 2017 earthquake in Tiktok video


A Tiktok video of Congresswoman Lucy Torres-Gomez talking about how BBM helped Ormoc after Yolanda tragedy and again 2017 earthquake without much fanfare as a private citizen circulates online.

Here’s what Cong. Lucy Torres-Gomez said about BBM:


We are all candidates and at some point we are vilified but maybe no one more than BBM who has been vilified all his life,  siguro for 40 years na. But if there is one thing I learned in public service out of the 12 years, bawal talaga maging judgmental. Di ba Cong Mike? Those people, the ones who throw stones so easily they only know what they read or hear what was told them.

I give you a concrete example, and I don’t know if BBM remembers this, but back when Yolanda happened, he was not part of the administration but one very first to help Ormoc was BBM and his family.

And through Irene, according to Lucy Torres Gomez, BBM sent Ormoc clean water and a gadget from some foreign company for clean water and she remember going to the different barangays, um, demonstrating how that is used and then having access to clean water at a very crucial time, that’s one.

Secondly, during the earthquake in 2017. If you are really looked at it, if you look at the dynamics, you had just lost an election. You didn’t make it back in 2016 but you were the first to be on the ground after the earthquake happened. You were with Cong Martin and Cong Anton Lagdameo, they were both colleagues at that time. You don’t have to be there but you were there and you helped the community.

I just want to say that more than what you say, more than what the plans are, what the grand plan is, it is really what you do on the battlefield as the battel rages on, the soldiers on the ground are suffering. So I think that speaks more about a leader than all the nice words or all the nice plans.
